COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop-Heads, your dreams have come true! Hop Ottin' is Boontling for "hardworking hops," and they're surely hard at work in this brew. Hop Ottin' starts with a strong floral aroma, which winds into a deep and complex body. In an intriguing balance, honey-drenched malts coat rich hop undertones. At length, the hops prevail, with a satisfyingly crisp finish. Hop Ottin' bites like a cankicky bluetail (Hop Ottin' bites like a rattlesnake looking for a fight.)

Pours an orangish-yellow color with an off-white head. Aroma is strong of citrus and pine hops with hints of some grassy tones. Starts off kind of flavorless with some of the grassy tones. Then citrus and pine hops kick in for a decent bitter finish but not what I was expecting from the aroma. Not very much carbonation on this brew as well. Decent but I like more from my IPA’s

on tap @ Pizza Plant Walker. Dark goden color that smells & looks like a great IPA. Very little hop bitterness though. Disappointed tastes more like an APA to me. Nice session brew.

smooth IPA - lots of citrusy hop flavor without being overly bitter. there is a nice complex malt backbone that gives the beer a smooth medium body. Everything else is pretty straightforward- nice, dark-golden color. Kind of a sweet, fruit taste as well. Bitter kick at the end with a dry finish.

22 oz bottle. Cloudy golden color with an off white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste of hops and malt. Strong bitter after taste.

Excelleny IPA. Very crispy hop flavor. Sweet enough to cover the alcohol. Smooth enough to enjoy and a great finish that you can enjoy.

EithCubes (5437) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle. Strong grapefruit, pineapple, lychee, and resin aroma, bittersweet and heavy. Clear orange with a foamy and fizzly tan head. Nice bready bitterness with grapefruit and resin, honey, lots of hops here. Medium body just doesn’t have a lot of oomph; dry hoppy aftertaste. Soft and warming. Really not sure how I feel about this guy; if I were in a different mood, it could conceivably score a a 3.9 or 4.0. Not a bad choice for a hops fix.

cathschlag (48) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2006
Couleur rousse cuivrée. La mousse laisse apparaître de belles grosses bulles, mais celle-ci n’est pas très tenace. Très belle odeur houblonnée un brin florale. En bouche, l’amertume se fait très très présente et on observe une certaine rondeur. L’amertume laisse sa place sur la langue longtemps après la dégustation. L’alcool fait sentir sa présence.

Poured picture perfect- Most notable is the longevity of the body. Lots of carbonation, but its not mouth shocking. Taste is smoother than the aroma and just as flavorful. Great balance in this delicious smelling and tasting quality brew. Nice work AVBC-

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 12oz bottle. i have no idea how fresh this is. pours a golden color with nice fluffy head. aroma is weak mild pnw hops that seem stale possibly some cat piss in there. the aroma leads me to believe this beer maybe old. flavor also has weak hop presence mild bitterness. the get some points for being balanced and easy to drink. i’ll have to rerate cuz i bought this as a single in an unfamilar store so i’m guessing this is past it’s prime.

Cloudy amber color with small head. Earthy floral aroma. Flavor was big on hops -- ranging from citrus to bitter, with a mild caramel and malt in the background. Very nice IPA.
